Abstract

To investigate the influence of the drainage rate and the particle contact model on the main features of the pebble flow, a quasi-static pebble flow of full scale German HTR-MODUL pebble bed is performed with up to 360,000 frictional graphite spheres. The treatment of the sphere-wall boundary condit...
